This is it: The series finale of Emmy-winning drama “Breaking Bad” airs at 8 tonight on AMC. Posted above are a couple of photos AMC has released in advance, which only add to my excitement and anxiety about the fate of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
As previously reported, AMC’s “Breaking Bad” marathon, which began Wednesday night, runs continuously up to the series finale.
Following the final episode, fans can discuss and dissect the end of one of the most addictive shows on television with an expanded one-hour episode of “Talking Bad,” the live after-show hosted by Chris Hardwick. Special guests on the final episode of “Talking Bad” include series creator Vince Gilligan, Aaron Paul, Jesse Plemmons, RJ Mitte, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks and Jimmy Kimmel.
During the finale, fans can also participate in amc.com’s live, interactive experience, “Breaking Bad Story Sync.” Polls, trivia questions and a live “Watch & Chat” are all timed to coincide with the broadcast of the finale. Story Sync is optimized for Internet browsers, tablet and mobile devices all with the goal of connecting fans with each other and deepening their engagement with “Breaking Bad’s” final episode.
On Twitter, fans and cast members will continue the conversation with hashtag #GoodbyeBreakingBad. The final episodes of the series have already generated significant activity on social media with “Breaking Bad” ranking No. 1 on cable for the week from Sept. 9 to Sept. 16 (Source: Trendrr), according to the release.
AMC’s newest drama, “Low Winter Sun” will shift to 10:15 p.m., following “Talking Bad” on Sunday only. In the episode “Revelations,” written by Dave Erickson and directed by Adam Davidson, Frank (Mark Strong) testifies in court and Geddes (Lennie James) takes his family on a trip. Meanwhile, Damon and Maya (James Ransone and Sprague Grayden) start their new lives under Skelos.
